Wondering if any of you have ever gotten rid of these mites? I am battling them now and going crazy trying different things that seems to work but can't seem to get rid of them altogether. It is exhausting keeping at it and my house is big and old and defies all efforts to really deep clean it. All of these posts are nearly a year old. Are there any success stories?
Most success stories involve getting a professional involved. That can be an entomologist from the Dept. of Agriculture, an exterminator, or a Doctor, depending on what type of parasite you're dealing with. People have been posting on this site for nearly a decade with this homeopathic remedy or that one for "these invisible biting bugs." Until you identify which ones you're dealing with, you will continue to fight the symptoms without dealing with the cause unless you just get lucky.
There are so many different types of biting/stinging/skin-irritating problems no simple answer will cover them all. First, collect a sample if possible. Collection can be as simple as leaving a bowl of warm water on the floor and examining what's on the surface several hours later. White bowls make samples easier to see. You can purchase glue traps made of white pasteboard and adhesive to leave out instead of the water, but pets and kids will want to investigate. Collection can also be as complicated as getting skin scrapings examined by a Dermatologist. I recommend starting with simple. Sorry if that sounds snarky, but this identification is going to be a process.
If samples prove difficult to collect, rule out environmental factors one by one. Dry air can cause skin to slough off, causing itching and small flakes. Damp air can promote mold growth. Static electricity can cause things to zap you without your noticing. Maybe you have some of these factors, maybe you don't, but change your environment,factor by factor, to see what effect the change has.
